A Bit More on CBN

For a bit more context before we take the full plunge, let’s talk a little more about the cannabinoid in question.

Some researchers understand CBN as a “weaker version of THC,” in that it comes with mild psychoactive reactions. This is unlike non-psychoactive cannabinoids like

, which may still come with some changes in the body and symptom relief, just without the psychoactive high associated with THC.

While CBN is largely known for its sedative qualities and potential as a sleep aid, it’s shown promise as an

and cannabinoid. Research has also shown CBN could have anti-inflammatory activity that could benefit healing of chronic wounds, where healing might have otherwise been prevented by prolonged inflammation. Research has also found CBN could be useful to treat eye conditions like glaucoma.

CBN is legal in the U.S., so long as it is derived from hemp, a type of cannabis with 0.3 percent or less THC. Keep in mind, our list contains options for a variety of consumers. Not looking for any THC? No problem. Looking for CBN only? You’ve got it. Okay, but also with a kick of THC? We’ve got you covered there, too!

A Note on Full and Broad Spectrum Products

You may see us use the phrases

when describing these CBN gummies. Both of these phrases mean that the various compounds and cannabinoids from the cannabis plant remain inside the product — which is good! This ultimately ensures higher efficacy, with all compounds and elements of the plant amping up those precious benefits.

There is a distinction, though, especially if you aren’t looking to ingest any THC:

Full spectrum products include additional cannabinoids and compounds of the cannabis plant, including THC. Broad spectrum is the same idea, just without THC — it still aims to retain all other additional compounds, which allows for the

to work its magic.

We could go on, but let’s get to the good stuff — our top five picks for the best CBN gummies!

Strongest Option

Let’s start out strong, shall we? The eye-catching name, Comfortably Numb, does not lie: This is a great option for consumers looking for something that really packs a punch.

Each gummy is packed with 12.5mg each of

THC and CBN, along with a bit of CBC to maximize the effects of both cannabinoids. CBC is non-psychoactive but works well synergistically with other cannabinoids. While you’ll surely notice the effects of the Delta 8 THC, the 1:1 ratio with CBN helps to mellow out some of the more energetic effects, ushering in a comfortable and calming feeling throughout the body, perfect for relaxing, resting and — you guessed it — a great night’s sleep.

The gummies are fairly affordable, with two different options: an eight-pack (200mg total, $19.99) and a 16-pack (400mg total, $29.99). 3Chi also offers two subscription options — sending new product every two weeks or every month — at a 10 percent discount.

Best Variety

Here’s the thing about these FOCL gummies: Sure, it’s one product, but with two iterations, FOCL ensures you are checking out with the gummies that fit best for you and your life.

The gummies each have 25mg of CBD and 15mg of CBN, specifically formulated to support deeper, more restful sleep, with 30 in each package. FOCL also adds in passion flower extract, an ancient herb commonly used to ease anxiety and aid in insomnia, and L-theanine, an amino acid derived from green tea used to ease anxiety and support better sleep. Not only that, but these gummies are also super tasty! If only there were more flavor options…

So, where does the variety come in? Namely, these gummies are available in both broad spectrum and full spectrum options! If you’re not down with THC, go with the broad spectrum option. However, FOCL asserts that their full spectrum gummies only contain trace amounts of THC — all the benefits without the high. 

Those looking to buy in bulk can also save a little money: Broad spectrum singles are $59, versus three-packs at $49 for each single; full spectrum singles are $69, versus three-packs at $55 for each single. FOCL also has a subscription option, which saves 20 percent, and uses Sezzle, if you’d like to make multiple, interest-free payments. We’re all about options!

Best Pure CBN

We’re always going to tout the benefits of combining cannabinoids and embracing broad and full spectrum options, but some folks want to keep it simple and hone in on one cannabinoid. For those consumers, CBD American Shaman has the perfect CBN gummies.

Each gummy has 2mg of CBN, with 30 total gummies, tailor made to aid in sleep. You’ll also get to sample an array of flavorful options in each bottle: watermelon, blackberry, tropical fruit, raspberry, green apple and peach.

Unfortunately, CBD American Shaman doesn’t have a subscription service or any bulk deals on its CBNight Gummies, but interestingly enough, the brand offers a two-gummy “sample size” option for those looking to dip their toes in without fully committing to an entire bottle for just $2.85. The standard, 30-gummy option is $49.95. 

It’s not the cheapest option on the list, though it can also be quite challenging to find a gummy with only CBN!

Best CBN Gummies For Sleep

Admittedly, all of these products are going to aid in relaxation, rest and sleep. If it’s got CBN, especially with the company of other cannabinoids, it just comes with the territory. But one gummy stands out in its support of healthy sleep habits: the Onyx + Rose Slumber Party Gummies.

Once again, the name says it all, but the “party” may admittedly be cut short after taking one of these babies. Each gummy has 20mg of CBD, 5mg of CBN and 3mg of melatonin. Onyx + Rose offer green apple and watermelon options, and the texture and taste is to die for.

The combination of ingredients is the perfect recipe for relaxing and cozying up. Not only did Onyx + Rose add in some melatonin, but relaxing accents like lemongrass and chamomile really push this one over the top.

Shoppers can save a little money by choosing Ritual delivery, but otherwise the gummies are only available at one price point: $44. While you won’t find a subscription through Onyx + Rose quite yet, the brand does offer a handful of bundles.

Most Affordable

For anyone looking for relief — for body, mind AND wallet — check out these CBN gummies from Plain Jane. These are definitely the cheapest gummies on our list, with a great blueberry flavor and 10mg of full-spectrum CBC, 5mg of CBN and 2.5mg of melatonin in each gummy. 

Plain Jane’s prices are truly unbeatable, with 100mg available for just $11.99 or a 500mg option for $39.99! It’s so affordable, it’s not shocking that Plain Jane doesn’t offer discounted CBN gummy subscriptions, though the brand does sell a number of bundles. (

includes the CBD + CBN gummies, along with its CBD gum, CBD oil, CBD Multivitamin Gummies and CBD Mixed Berry Gummies.)

The price does come with a bit of a caveat: While the gummies are labeled “Sleep,” we’d argue they are better suited for reducing anxiety and stress than explicitly for a good night’s rest. It’s a subtle blend of cannabinoids, great for beginners and new cannabis/cannabinoid consumers, but not so much for experienced consumers.

They’re admittedly not the most effective CBN gummies available, but when it comes to affordability, there’s no competition.

Final Thoughts

It’s true that we are still learning a lot about cannabis and the various compounds it contains, and CBN is no exception. But still, consumers are taking control of their own wellness routines; anecdotal evidence, combined with the research that is available, is promising, especially for folks with insomnia and sleep disorders.

Aside from its sleep-related benefits, CBN is simply a great in-between option for consumers looking for a middle ground between the non-psychoactive

and psychoactive THC cannabinoids. While each of these CBN gummies have their pros and cons, any of them are great options to start, or maintain, your CBN journey with.

Now, onward, to a future of improved wellness, rest and sleep with CBN!
